Federated Challenge Raises Millions for Big Brothers Big Sisters

Plastics Business


More than 50 prominent businesses and several hundred private citizens gathered at The Saint Paul RiverCentre in St. Paul, Minnesota, on July 29 for the 14th annual Federated Challenge supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Overwhelming generosity on the part of corporate sponsors and attendees generated more than $2.8 million during the charitable event. One hundred percent of the money raised will be donated to the three Minnesota Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.

These monies support ongoing operations and the Federated Challenge Scholarship Fund. The scholarship fund provides up to $5,000 per year to qualified Littles and high school-aged Bigs enrolled in a non-four-year program at a trade or technical school or community college that focuses on career-ready skills training.
